in reply to Help with PDF::API2::Simple and PDF::Table

PDF::Table has a habit of taking over the pagination. To keep control of the process, you may be better off to break this down into two stages.

  • create the table in a temporary pdf object
  • insert the table graphics, page-by-page, back into the main pdf

    You can then control where and how the pages from the table are inserted back into the main pdf.

    See Re^3: Add Border to a PDF file. This demonstrates copying pages from one pdf object to another.

        Hi, monks! craret, can you, please post the working code? I am struggling with it for hours now and still didn't reach to a result. Thanks!
